Sid and Donna Levine Fund in Memory of Morris Levine and Max Romanoff
for the Benefit of the Jewish Historical Society Established at the Jewish Foundation
Donna and Sid Levine established a new fund at the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven in honor of and in memory of their fathers, Morris and Max.
The Fund was established to support the important work of the Jewish Historical Society including maintaining and expanding its extensive archives and providing community educational programs.
“As a 3rd generation New Havener, I appreciate the Society’s remarkable fifty year history of documenting Jewish stories and lives. My father Morris Levine and Donna’s father Max Romanoff were both World War Two Veterans who worked together at Chepovsky’s Food Market on Legion Ave. When Max was dating Estelle Gold he took Morris to meet her. Estelle became Donna’ mother. Both Morris and Max had a lot of affection for New Haven and its Jewish History. The fund is named in honor of Morris and Max,” explained Sid Levine.
